Emergencies and disasters are unavoidable and are happening more and more frequently in British Columbia. Although it is impossible to predict what will happen in the future, it is possible to use the best available information now to make a plan to help reduce any negative impacts on your business.

Well prepared businesses have been proven to fare much better through and after a disaster because they have already considered the possible impacts to their business and developed strategies ahead of time for dealing with them.

The Business Continuity Plan is a plan that focuses on the ability of a business to prepare for and respond to unexpected disruptions. The goal is to protect employees and assets so that a business can continue to operate.
